Summer Day On The Lower Yuba
The flows on the Lower Yuba are now at a "normal" 2,800 CFS. The river has changed drastically and was difficult to fish effectively from the bank. I caught plenty of small trout both on hoppers and nymphs but overall nothing too exciting. The fish were more reluctant to take on the retrieve rather than the dead drift which was very interesting. Hot summer days on the Lower Yuba are usually not very productive but it was good get out for a few hours.
I've officially hit the summer slump. Hot triple digit days and too few days off work to travel have slowed down my fishing adventures. Tight lines and stay cool out here!
